After being blown away at the 6-27-87 Alpine Valley show, I called a buddy of mine who lived in Queens to rave about the recent show. Knowing what a HUGE Dylan fan I am, Ken suggested I come to NY the next Sunday and see the Dead AND Dylan at Giants stadium. With a place to stay, I was on my way! Another friend of Ken's thought it might be fun and drove from Detroit to see the show. We ingested at the Imagine mosaic in Strawberry Fields/Central Park, then drove to the Meadowlands on a fine, sunny Sunday afternoon. The Morning Dew 2nd set opener was mind-bending, with the video screens sending trails of Jerry's guitar everwhere. Fantastic Playin'>Drums/Space>Other One segment with plenty left in the tank for Dylan's set. I felt privileged to see Jerry play pedal steel on Tomorrow Is A Long Time, even though it's a tad rusty. John Brown...Wicked Messenger...Chimes of Freedom...definitely deep catalog Dylan that I was very familiar with. When they played Joey, the view from the stadium looking into New York will forever be burned into my memory. A fantastic EXPERIENCE to be sure. On the way home, while sitting in traffic waiting to go through the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to us beeps the horn, motioning to the driver (from Detroit...) to roll down the window..."Mike Doogan, you social butterfly, throw me a cigarette!" A real-life Twilight Zone moment.....8 million people in this city and this guy knows us. Is that like a 1 in 8 million chance of that happening or what!?!? What a way to cap off a once in a lifetime experience.

Up against the plywood and scaffolding barrier in front of the stage [Jerry's side] for the first set. Too much "In the Dark" material, but a well played set. Great Loser and smoking Bertha. Decided we were too old to carry the crowd on our backs so moved by the soundboard for the rest of the show. Morning Dew to open Set 2 was a treat. And Playing was pretty good but disappointenly went into drums. Balance of set was well played, but a song combo heard way too often. The Dylan set had its moments but overall it was a Tangle up in Blue shy of being a "great set".

5 stars for the historical significance of the boys backing up Dylan. 3 stars for song selection. And 4 stars for how they played. Averages out to 4 stars for a summer day and evening in my home state.

Great soundboard for the first two sets, third set has the FOB which sounds much better than the circulating soundboard for that set. Not on my list of favorite shows but it was decent with some highlights through out, worth a listen. I remember the Bertha as being pretty boisterous.
